If you’re looking to create a fabulous outdoor space to enjoy alone or with friends and family, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Here at Shutters & Blinds, we work with homeowners looking to enhance their gardens and business owners looking to furnish their customers with comfortable seating areas. Patios are a wonderful place to spend a sunny afternoon, but in hot weather, the heat can become intolerable, not to mention that prolonged sun exposure is harmful.
Awnings are attached to the side of a building and are designed to be fully retractable so they can be tucked away when not needed. When extended, they provide much-needed shelter, protecting those sat underneath from the heat and harmful exposure. They also come in handy when it’s raining. Plus, with the addition of outdoor lighting and a few heaters, you can make use of your patio at night or during the colder months.
Canopies differ from awnings in that they are intended to provide cover for freestanding structures, such as pergolas. Beyond this one difference, they provide more or less the same benefits as awnings do.
At Shutters & Blinds, we supply awnings and canopies in a wide range of designs, durable materials, and all are fabricated using quality engineered products. Canopies usually remain deployed when not in use, so ours are engineered with strength. Awnings are also engineered to the same standard, though we recommend retracting these when not in use.
Some outdoor furniture only has limited resistance to prolonged exposure to the elements. While other items you might choose to keep outdoors have no protection whatsoever. Besides protecting you and your family, awnings and canopies also protect objects from direct sun exposure.
In summary, awnings and canopies provide a wealth of excellent benefits, including:
- More than 200 Easy-Clean Fabrics Available
- Integrated Heating and Lighting Solutions
- Protection from Rain and UV Rays
- Five-Year Guarantees Available
As mentioned above, the inclusion of integrated heating and lighting solutions means that you’ll be able to make full use of your patio or outdoor seating area all year long.
Our awnings and canopies are available in different sizes too, from ones small enough to cover a small patio or pergola to ones large enough to encompass a sizeable customer seating area.
